Mr. Wiggley says: He uses that line on convicts.
duststorm writes: Convicts are more open to the good news of Jesus. There is nothing like being stripped of everything he has and experiencing the penal system to lay a man low. There is nothing to do all day but read. If they read the Bible, some get saved.

Mr. Wiggley: Believe in the jesus charactor and you'll be saved...no matter what you did or what you do from now on..
duststorm: Praise the Lord, Brother Wiggley, we'll have you preaching the gospel yet. You have just condensed the whole work of Jesus Christ on the cross in one cogent sentence. The truth is the truth. Christ came to not to save the righteous, but to lead sinners to repentance. Come ye weary sinners, it does not matter what you have done or what sins you may commit in the future---they are all covered by the pure precious blood of our Lord.

Mr. Wiggley: Problem is he thinks intelligent non-convicts will buy into it also and he thinks it clears him of his questionable behavior.
duststorm: You are correct that the odds that an American adult who is successful, clean-living, following the laws of God and man, who doesn't partake of the usual vices, will humble himself, recognize his guilt, and trust Christ are very low. This is why Mormons, Muslims, and Jews, are almost immune to the message. They consider themselves to have attained righteousness by their works in this life. Problem is, this life is soon over.

Bleak times.

I loathed it when it was new. Now it's been replaced by hip-hop.
I do not regard this as an improvement.

While most people in this area would never acknowledge this fact, here is a bit of history for you. Before I begin, I suggest that you get on NETFLIX and Watch the documentaries on there about religion:(1.Zeitgeist the Movie. 2. Religulous w/ Bill Moher etc.) The fact I was referring to is that the Bible that we know today was written by men, just like any other who were supposedly under divine-inspiration. If an all perfect being guided these men who wrote the Bible, why is it that there are two very different Gods in the Old and New Testaments, and why all the multiple contradictions.(i.e.OT: an eye for an eye NT: turn the other cheek, etc.) Another fact that most people aren't aware of or refuse to acknowledge is that the modern King James Version of the Bible and the Catholic Bible are both incomplete, with many of the books missing (see Nag Hammadi Texts, Dead Sea Scrolls).
I first began to question the legitimacy of all religions when I started reading into the history of these matters. After over 8 years of research, I have concluded that mono-theistic (one God) religions that dominate the world today are designed to make the largest part of the population compliant with and accepting of a single leader (i.e an emperor, king, or president) and their government philosophies.
Another strange thing that I've found is that most christians believe that the USA was founded as a Christian nation by Christians. Unfortunately, history says otherwise. Many of the founders (Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, and many others) were not Christians privately. George Washington wrote in a private letter that (paraphrasing)'Christianity is good for the army and poor people' because it gives hope to the poor and helps army men be less afraid of death.' Washington also didn't enjoy attending church and spent most Sundays at his home drinking alcohol and even complained when 'forced' to go to church. Jefferson had a somewhat different view, he believed in God, but not Jesus as the son of God. Using a razor blade, he removed all references of miracles from his copy of the Bible.
The fact is, monotheistic religions are designed as a means of controlling the populace. Another issue most people who claim one of the Big 3 (Christianity, Islam, Judaism) is the horrific acts of intolerance and violence against members of other religions, especially each other. Again, all that is needed is a knowledge of history to understand what I'm talking about. In fact, the rise of Christianity led to one of the most ignorant periods of intellectual decline in recorded history: The Dark Ages / Inquisition. Even today, many people do crazy things in the name of God.
That is not to say that all Christians, Muslims or Jews are bad. In fact many of them are decent and caring people. Most all of my family is Christian. However, religion requires two things from its followers that I cannot abide. 1. Faith- asking someone to blindly believe whole-heartedly in divine entities without any type of proof other than a 'feeling'. 2. Not question anything that is considered dogmatic. This just doesn't work for me. it never has. I knew from early in my childhood that religion was not for me. I was often forced to go to church when I didn't want to go. I admit, I went sometimes because I wanted to, but only because I was searching for something that turned out not to be there. I too was told I should feel a great change in me after accepting Jesus. I've probably asked to be saved at least 100 times, never once feeling any change nor noticing any difference in my daily life.
It feels good to know that people are still talking to Dearth from beyond the grave.
I do miss his weak and meaningless answers.

That's a little overbearing judgement call. They are lies and fallacies because you disagree with him. I have read Strobel along with many others and not everything they say is so easy to brush off as incorrect.
Unscarred1, welcome to the thread. Walking in Paradise has given up the ghost, as has Dearth of Couth, we are told. They are dropping like flies off of here. I hope you are born again so that when the inevitable befalls you, you will go to heaven

Yeah, well, that's just another manifestation of the Fundie's endless wail: "The End Is Near!".

Or "The Sky Is Falling!"

Or "The Cherokees Is Escaped From Fort Mudge!"

Or something like that.

Really? Then where are these records? I have done a lot of Ancient Egypt studies and nowhere does it mention some magician, especially none named Jesus.
Have you ever heard of Mt. Sinai, aka Mt. Horeb in Egypt? 3 Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb.
2 And the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.
4 God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses.
5 put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground.
6 I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.
7 And the Lord said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters
8 And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians

Kitten, in the Bible, the angel of the Lord is considered by scholars to be the manifestation of Jesus Christ himself.
